God damn genius of creating the characters

Every character has their own story and you don't need those flashback fillers to tell because their choice of dialogue just oozes out of it in the purest form. it's especially fun when i got to hear Warren's rants, you could decipher so many things just from Warren's pure vibe. You didn't need filler flashbacks to know Warren is frustrated with society, lonely and isolated, but too conceited and proud to have atleast one friend. the psycho can get real emotional sometimes which is so ironic in the saddest form, and i love irony. the Story starts slow but the continuous world building kept me going, especially by being intrigued to the Immortal's past, I was also very confused why He wasn't as Overpowered as i thought immortals would be but hearing the answer made me respect this epic on another scale, it gets real philosophical in a lot of ways, the author didn't make him overpowered just for cliche purposes, he thought about it, he definately did, just when you hear him explain why he isn't as strong stunned me, something along the lines of "Because I've lived so long it's not fun anymore" the story tackles the idea of talent vs effort, unrelated but my past goals on trying to go professional in a Video game made me really relate to that concept. It's really hard to win when you lose motivation, especially when it's not fun anymore, to create a wise character when you're not wise yourself is impossible, author gained a lot of my respect when i heard those lines, All in all, This is an epic, it's not just about the quest, it's the world and the characters in it, they really made this one shine through. I always think about to it when i think of a good story and Warren may stick as my favorite fictional character for awhile.

Questions. But that's why it's good

Is it confusing? Yes. But that's why it's interesting. Are there some unsatisfactory parts? Yes. Most definitely. Is it going nowhere? Absolutely not. Though there are many questions I still have after reading it, it did answer some and it is vague because that is the nuance. The characters themselves are figuring out the meaning of their existence, their pain, their nonexistence and unsatisfactory though some may be, you do get all the answers. I can't say I liked everything about the story so far, but I can say it was well done. And I do believe there will be a sequel.

Going nowhere

There is no story. The girl is supposed to be sick and on the verge of dying, but that's hardly visible, save a cough once in a while. She teams up with an immortal and they both look for the knowledge that would cure her. This looks like a never-ending quest with no clear purpose. Other characters appears along the quest, each one being stronger than the previous one, à la shounen.

I've read up to chapter 20 then skipped to 57. I could grasp the situation and what happened immediately though I had missed two thirds of the series, so it seems the pace gets extremly slow.

The drawings are not very good in the first chapters and they turn bad later on.

By the way, I did not find any reference to Gilgamesh, the mythical king of Ur that tried to be immortal but failed. I started reading this manhwa because of its name. The sumerian-akkadian tale is far more interesting than this series, my favorite part being the plot to stop Enkidu from living among beasts, up to the fight with the tyrant. The Gilgamesh tale will go on for another 5000 years, while this manhwa will soon be forgotten even by its readers.
